If you’ve been caught in the crashy, buggy, no-full-screen hell of Chrome on a Mac lately, there’s good news. According to Google, Chrome 14 is out, stable and ready to fix your problems.
While there are fixes across all platforms, it’s the Mac users that should be happiest today:
For all web pages, Chrome uses Lion’s overlay scrollbars, which appear only while you’re scrolling. We’ve also added initial support for Lion’s full-screen mode, triggered by a full-screen button or Ctrl+Shift+F. Finally, we’ve fixed many crash bugs, and added some all-around visual polish.
Chrome’s fast iteration has been the subject of much discussion over the past couple of years. With Stable, Beta and Canary versions, there’s a huge variety of choices depending upon how risk averse you are.
Fortunately, it doesn’t appear that the controversial “save my information everywhere” feature has made it into the Stable release just yet. As we wrote last week, this settings flag would allow you to stay logged in to any website, all you have to do is ask.
Your Chrome should have already updated. If it hasn’t, or if you’d like to give Chrome a try, just head over to http://google.com/chrome and get installing.
